In the first section of this article I briefly introduce Yuasa Yasuo’s attempt at “rethinking nature” from an intercultural perspective, especially addressing the process through which it emerged as a research project. My point is that similar “intercultural experiments” are still too rare and marginal in “Western” scientific and academic community because of the too high incidence of epistemic ethnocentrism. Therefore, in the second section I consider more in depth the notion of epistemic ethnocentrism, as well as its dangers, the most important of which is epistemicide. In this context, the reference is, among others, to authors such as Boaventura de Sousa Santos, Walter D. Mignolo, and Ramón Grosfoguel. In the concluding section, I try to argue for the adoption of a successful intercultural attitude also referring to some of Friedrich Nietzsche’s positions
